Event description

Description

This workshop highlights the state-of-the-art water reclamation facility and its innovative processes used to treat wastewater. It will also allow students to see the complex SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system used to control almost every aspect of the process. Participants will learn the critically important process of treating wastewater then replicate portions of that process using simulated wastewater during a hands-on learning experience. Finally, a walking tour of the facility will also allow students to see the operational size and scope of the operation.

This workshop is specifically designed for incoming high school students (grades 9-12 in fall of 2019).


Spokane County Water Resources collaborates with other local agencies in environmental education programs for primary and secondary school students. The Water Resource Center provides a fantastic setting for interactive learning. Additionally, tours of the Water Reclamation Facility are excellent secondary and higher education students to enhance chemistry and biology lessons and facilitate career development discussion regarding wastewater treatment.
